Relatives of Earl Scott, the man implicated in a stabbing incident at Laing Avenue a few weeks back, are now claiming that he was provoked by the injured man.
One aunt who requested anonymity said that the victim, Ryan Nicholas, had made repeated attempts at her nephew’s life. The woman told this publication that the feud stemmed from a gambling bet that went sour.
She alleges that it was Nicholas who was the aggressor and her nephew was defending himself. The aunt said that her nephew would constantly avoid confrontations with Nicholas, who would continue to provoke him.
The aunt opined that Nicholas does not live at Laing Avenue, but would come there just to torment her nephew.
The woman claimed that in November 2008, Nicholas and two gun-toting men barged into her mother’s residence at Laing Avenue.
She alleged that Nicholas fired twice at her nephew but he missed.
“Ryan fire two shots at he…but none aint catch he,” the woman said.
The three men according to the woman walked calmly left the scene.
She said that she was able to remove a warhead that was lodged in the front door. The woman said she took it to the East Ruimveldt Outpost, where she gave a sworn statement about the incident but she said no police rank ever visited the house or even tried to contact her nephew.
Another relative who was present recounted that Nicholas had attacked Scott with a cutlass and chopped him to his ear.
The relative explained that Scott again was at his grandmother’s residence when he was attacked.
After that incident, the relative said that a female friend of Nicholas made an allegation that Scott had robbed her. Scott was eventually charged and the matter is presently being heard at the Georgetown Magistrates Court.
On May 4, the day of the stabbing, relatives said that Scott was at his grandmother’s residence when he saw a close friend who was sitting with Nicholas.
Scott spoke to the friend, which apparently caused Nicholas to become annoyed. An argument quickly ensued between the two, and it is alleged that it was Nicholas who whipped out a knife.
The aunt said that Scott picked up a plastic chair and tried to block the attack.
The aunt further told this newspaper that her nephew managed to get the upper hand on Nicholas and stabbed him.
While Scott’s aunt said that the family is not upholding what was done to Nicholas, she wants the public to be aware of the torment her nephew endured.
She said that on numerous occasions Scott made reports to the police station, but none was taken seriously. Since the stabbing incident the relatives claimed they have not seen or heard from Scott.
“We would like Scotty to turn himself in because the police have listed him as a wanted man…and we don’t want it to be harmed,” the aunt said.
Meanwhile, Kaieteur News understands that Nicholas was released from the hospital.
On May 4, Nicholas and Scott had a heated fracas which resulted in Nicholas being stabbed repeatedly.
Celeste Marshall, Nicholas’s reputed wife had told the media that Scott ran into her mother’s home and stabbed her husband.
